Overview

Reuben Holding, un joven reportero, investiga para un artículo del San Francisco Observer. Una anciana le da la bienvenida a la majestuosa casa familiar sobre la que él tiene que escribir y que ella debe vender con cierta urgencia. Un encuentro fortuito entre dos personas de mundos distintos... Una noche idílica sacudida por una violencia inaudita, en la que el joven es inexplicablemente atacado ?mordido? por una bestia a la que no puede distinguir entre la oscuridad del lugar... Un episodio violento que desencadena una terrible aunque seductora transformación, a partir de la cual el joven, atrapado entre el éxtasis y el horror, entre la aceptación de en qué se está convirtiendo y el miedo a lo que devendrá, pronto empieza a experimentar la emoción del don del lobo. Mientras se resiste a la paradoja del placer y el embelesamiento de su salvaje condición lupina, y se deleita con el poder y la (sorprendente) capacidad para hacer el bien, se ve envuelto en un rescate extraño y peligroso y sufre la persecución de las autoridades, los medios de comunicación y los científicos (pruebas de ADN amenazan con revelar su naturaleza dual) contra el «hombre lobo» A medida que va haciendo mella en él un nuevo y profundo amor, surgen ciertas incógnitas que le sumergen todavía más en su misterioso nuevo mundo: incógnitas sobre por qué y cómo ha recibido este don; sobre su verdadera naturaleza y el curioso y placentero impulso que siente hacia el bien; sobre la posibilidad real de que haya otros como él que lo estén observando, criaturas guardianas que han existido en todos los tiempos y atesoran antiguos secretos y conocimientos alquímicos. Y siempre presente, la búsqueda de la salvación de un alma atormentada por un nuevo reino de tentaciones y un viaje estimulante y peligroso que lo llevará a convertirse y ser, plenamente, tanto lobo como hombre.
